anyone who wonders whether better jobs and better paychecks are a thing of the past, i have a clear and unequivocal message. with the right leadership, america is about to come roaring back. >> this should not be that complicated. we tried our ideas, they worked. the idea grew. we created jobs. we tried their ideas, they didn't work. the economy didn't grow. not as many jobs. deficit went up. >> bret: the closing arguments in the final hours. we're back with the panel. what about the closing arguments and what the two candidates are running on? >> well, for obama it's simple. in fact, despite some of the statistics, his policies have worked, they just need more time to work, and romney is a bad guy, romney is lying about what he is representing himself as, that he is not the moderate he portrayed himself at. a rubber stamp of very congress servetive, congressional -- conservative congressional republicans and he will take us back.
